Busting Open the 1995 Collector's Choice Box: 2 Silver Signature Parallels Per Pack!

As I stated this morning, it's time to get crackin' on another one of the Christmas boxes!  The 1995 Upper Deck Collector's Choice box has 36 packs with 10 cards per pack - so be prepared for a LOT of cards over the next few days!

Before I bust any of the packs though, I had to scan them for you.

Don't those simply SCREAM "nineties" to you?  They sure do to me.  Good stuff!

Pack 1:
22.  Garey Ingram (x2)

Yep, first pack into the box and I already have duplicates.  At least it's a Dodger...there's more than enough Dodger collectors out there, someone's gotta want my duplicate.
76.  Jeff Bagwell
164.  Mark Lemke
222.  Tom Candiotti
336.  Dwight Smith
436.  John Smiley
471.  Alan Trammell
Silver Sig:  156.  David Justice - Braves

Silver Sig:  232.  Chan Ho Park - Dodgers

Well, pack one was chock full of Dodgers - four to be precise.  The two Silver Sig parallels will probably find themselves in new homes before too long...I have no plans to collect the parallel set (except the Reds I guess).

Pack 2:
21.  John Mabry
23.  Garret Anderson

Anyone for a little pink on their baseball cards?!
77.  Kirby Puckett
165.  Tom Glavine
223.  Ismael Valdes
337.  Jack Voigt
437.  John Roper
470.  Cecil Fielder

Silver Sig:  215.  Randy Myers - Cubs
Silver Sig:  255.  William Van Landingham - Giants

Anyone interested in either of those parallels?  Let me know!

As a whole, that was a solid start.  I'm happy to report that I got a Red in each pack (which is awesome).  I love the Collector's Choice line.  Sure it's a bit hokey, but it's simple...and I like simple sometimes!

I'm trying to come up with a scenario where Garey Ingram would have a player's bum leaning on his hip while he's making a jump throw. Very peculiar action shot.

Also, is Chan Ho park sporting a green Dodger hat? Or are my eyes deceiving me?

Gosh I loved Collector's Choice growing up. It was great for a kid with a $5 a week allowance.

I could use that Park parallel because for some I reason I have to complete dumb parallel sets like that.
